Rodolfo Gonzales said he had learned lessons from last year’s final defeat to Copiapo. “We have a more complete team than last year and we are better prepared,” he said.
The definition of the first B is that it burns . Cobreloa, Santiago Wanderers and Deportes Iquique have mathematical chances to win the title and advance directly , on an undoubtedly unforgettable afternoon in Chilean football.
The Lo@nos will visit Rangers in Talca this Sunday, in parallel with the duel that will be played in the north between Iquique and Wanderers. If Cobreloa wins and the Caturros earn points, the return to the First Division will become a reality.
Who was expecting what this real final will be was Rodolfo Gonz Elimlez, captain of the Oranges, who explained in a conversation with ADN Radio that there are only a few days left for what this match will be, which is a final for us, against a tough rival like Rangers and even more visitors. We are waiting for you, we work as we have done all year round, and we also help the youngest to control their emotions.
I don’t know if it’s good or bad that they don’t fight. They have taken off the relegation battle backpack and will play free of everything. They have a great squad with players who know the category very well and will be a difficult rival, he added.
Regarding the atmosphere that currently reigns in Calama, Gonzalo Elimlez explained that there is a passion, people are very motivated so that we can advertise and spread it everywhere. We have to try to channel all these emotions in a positive way, and hopefully we can take it easy to think about what the game will be like.
Looking back on the final defeat against Copiapo in 2022, the captain of Lo9no stated that we were close. We had a very good campaign and it was not enough to become champions with the great campaign of Magallanes and lose the final with Copiapo.
Today we have a good opportunity again and hopefully we can be crowned on Sunday. It remained an important foundation of last year’s squad. “We are thirsty for revenge and I hope that it can be given to us,” he added.
In conclusion, the defender warned that the young players who had to take part in this game already have the experience as it was. They learned lessons, like the older ones who stayed. Unlike last year, we have a more complete team and we are better prepared.
